Lovely Home - Amazing Service

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege of staying at this amazing home in Nasvhille, TN! Laurie is such an amazing host and she was easy to reach whenever I had questions. The location is perfect for a private stay with friends or family and only a 20 minute Uber ride to Broadway. I hosted my sister's bachelorette party here (13 women total); we had plenty of room and comfortable beds for all of us. I found a cute bakery nearby which delivered cupcakes and macaroons for us and there is an awesome Juice Bar nearby.

I would definitely stay here again! Everything was clean and Laurie offered towels, a helpful binder full of restaurants and the details of the house, easy access for entry and departure.

Thanks again Laurie! I could write about how amazing our stay was for much longer but I am sure everyone does not want to read a novel. :)

Perfect for our big family!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The Blue Door could not have been any better. From our first correspondence with Laurie, the owner, through the duration of our visit we had a 5-star experience. The location was convenient to everything but also served as a quiet and comfortable place for our multi-generational family to relax. The house is every bit as beautiful and well equipped as the pictures show it to be. Laurie went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed and gave us suggestions that made our stay even more meaningful. She was truly gracious and responsive to our every need.

Very Nice Home w/Multiple Gathering Areas

  • 5 of 5

Family from Illinois and Florida converged at The Blue Door near Nashville. This home has an upstairs and a downstairs kitchen and 3 separate sitting areas, allowing for all kinds of different comfortable spaces for getting together or separating as the needs arise. The dining area off the upstairs kitchen has a HUGE table where everyone can sit together to enjoy breakfast before heading out for the day or dinner after a long day on Broadway. There are two separate outdoor areas as well, including a large deck off the upstairs kitchen. Our family (group of 8) was so comfortable in this home we wanted to stay--or better yet, take this home with us when we left. It would be a perfect multi-family home :-) The decor is beautiful as well. This home is about 20 minutes outside Nashville in the Belle Meade area--round trip Uber is fast and convenient at about $16 to downtown. My family has no complaints on this home and would stay again. Two comments I will make are that this home is right in the middle of a neighborhood, so if you are wanting to loudly party, this house won't work. It is also situated on a hill with a steep driveway, so elderly people (there were none in our group) might have difficulty making their way up the drive and into the home--not a deal breaker, they'll just need a little help. Parking is either the steep drive or on the street, but with 4 vehicles we were able to make it work. Thank you Laurie, for allowing our Illinois and Florida family stay in your beautiful home.

Well worth the stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My group of 15 and I could not have found a better place to stay in Nashville! This house is beautiful inside and out. I can honestly say I cannot come up with one negative thing to say! Laurie the owner is such a sweetheart and very accommodating. Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay to celebrate my 30th birthday and proposal to my Fiancé! We will most definitely be staying here on our next trip! Thanks again Laurie!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Blue Door for a week with a large group as we did volunteer work in the city. It was the perfect size for a big group, and full equipped. My team and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone coming to visit Nashville.

The Blue Door is located in the heart of West Nashville, minutes to downtown, upscale shopping in Green Hills and Belle Meade, the Warner Parks, greenways, and 12th South. Need some pampering? Escape Day Spa and Salon, voted 9 years in a row Nashville's Best Spa, is just a 5 minute drive. Do not miss the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, my favorite place for the WHOLE family, just 5 minutes away! We love to get a burger at The Sportsman's Grille, a great place to people watch in Belle Meade!
